Fanelli's Cafe

09-09 Fanelli's Cafe
Fanelli's Cafe may show up on every tourist guide but it's pretty genuine as far as old school bars are concerned. The weathered, checkered red tablecloths, the waitresses calling everyone by 'hon and of course the patina of years and years of cigarette smoke are part of its charm and authenticity. I was craving a Philly cheese steak earlier, but it is a bit far for a workday lunch, so we settle for a generic steak sandwich topped with gobs of melted cheddar cheese hiding grilled peppers, onions and slivers of steak. It does the trick for now but Philly is a callin'.
